SINGAPORE Changi Airport's air freight throughput declined 6.1 per cent to 178,000 tonnes in November, reports Mumbai's Stat Trade Times.
The airport handled 5.72 million passenger movements in November 2019, an increase of 5.7 per cent compared to the same period last year. Aircraft movements dipped one per cent to 32,600 landings and takeoffs.
For the month of November, all regions recorded passenger growth. Among Changi Airport's top 10 markets, China, Japan, and Vietnam traffic led the gainers, with double-digit growth.
Among the top 10 city routes, Denpasar (Bali) was the fastest-growing, with Ho Chi Minh, Taipei and Tokyo registering traffic growth of more than six per cent.
Meanwhile, Changi has won a 25-year concession to operate Komodo Airport in Labuan Bajo, the main gateway to the Komodo dragon national park in East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.
The consortium will build the facilities and have full control of the airport before handing back the airport management to the government at the end of the concession period.
